Aquifer of the Weave
James Allister Sprang's Aquifer of the Weave makes use of 4DSOUND technology to immerse the audience in a cocoon of spatial sound, inviting them to turn inward and consider the following:
"We are all longing. Nostalgia for the old normal is a pang in all of our sides."
Comprised of a massive installation of handwoven cyanotypes which were constructed over a period of many months via residencies at Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning and The Painted Bride, and a 4DSOUND spatial audio installation, Aquifer of the Weave is an intimate experience of shifting light, material, and sound.
The piece was premiered at The Chocolate Factory Theater in New York on March 2nd 2022.
